Brad Paisley Stages Epic ‘Elf on the Shelf’ Snowball Fight

by Joe Rutland

What do superheroes, “snowballs,” and Jerry Lee Lewis have in common? They all play parts in an “Elf on the Shelf” battle by Brad Paisley.

Obviously tapping into the Christmas spirit, Paisley decided to set up different characters on a mantle. In an Instagram post, characters like Superman, The Incredible Hulk, Spider-Man, Iron Man, and other Avengers are in battle mode.

Paisley sets off his “Elf on the Shelf” fight as Lewis sings “Great Balls of Fire” in the background.

The country singer-songwriter strategically sets up the clash as his phone camera moves right, then left, and then back to the right. Not one minute of the action is missed by Paisley.

After all, what is one of country’s biggest superstars who is stuck at home during a pandemic going to do? Might as well have some fun with his fans.

Brad Paisley Finds His ‘Elf on the Shelf’ Too Much Fun

This isn’t the first time Brad Paisley has been putting his “Elf on the Shelf” to the test.

Since it’s hunting season, a wayward miniature deer can be facing serious jeopardy. Paisley gets down to business, though.

In another Instagram post, a team of miniature elves all decked out in camouflage goes hiding behind foliage in Paisley’s home. Wielding little crossbows, they wait for the next big game to cross their paths.

In the video, the elves took out a group of golden ceramic deer. Santa Claus might want to put out a roll call for his reindeer. It looks like Prancer might not be making it for Christmas either.

All of the action is set to “A Country Boy Can Survive” by Hank Williams Jr. Paisley certainly knows how to have fun during the holiday season. Please, though, watch out for his elves.
